Hey, you're talking to a guy who has a WICK in one of his cans.

Slax -
I would consider drilling a hole in the bottom cap (to drain any escaped gas), then mounting them on the other side of the stern rail so they hang over the water. Then any potential gas will go over the side rather than cascading onto the deck.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

We like our wine with dinner aboard Guenevere. The storage we use is not in our bilge as it's to thin in most of it for the bottles, so we use a storage compartment under the V birth.

We all know to store the bottles in socks (Jill insists on ONLY NEW socks! )

BUT, it is often dark in that compartment and choosing a wine can be a chore. Sooo......

I bought some white socks ($5.00 +/-) and dyed (Rit at $2.70) a few of them red. We now use the red socks for red whine or white ones for the white whine. It's EASY now to find a nice Zin for that dinner!

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

This is a little bracket that can be removed . I have my GPS on it but you can put anything you want . First it is on my cockpit bulkhead right in front of the tiller . It can be quick removed , just spin the wing nut . I hope you can see from the pics it's mounting function , a fixed lip on the "L" bracket and a movable lip/with slot and said wing nut. This little mount is not limited to a port light . At first I was going to put it on the companion way slide rail but settled on the bulkhead. Hope you like it!

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Having it sit in the bronze port is way cool - much nicer than those swingaway setups that sit in the companionway.

Are you aware you can buy various types of knobs & thumbwheels at good tools stores for very cheap? Would make a tidy replacement for the wingnut.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

I built and installed this today. Total cost was $12.99 since I had a spare turnbuckle. Insurance against pulling up the stem plate, priceless for $tingy Sailor.
